Market Abuse

Seminar Overview


Behaviour such as insider dealing and market manipulation can amount to market abuse. Firms must have safeguards in place to identify and reduce the risk of market abuse and other financial crime. And yet we still continue to see examples plaguing the industry. This Market Abuse course is about much more than just MAR; we examine the full landscape of market abuse; what it is, what it means and why it matters.
